The Dodge Victory (or Dodge Series 130/131), and later Dodge Series M and Dodge Series DA, was a mid-size passenger car by the American automaker Dodge, which was presented in January 1928. It was built for a further two years following Dodge's merger with Chrysler in 1928.

History

Victory Series 130/131 (January 1928-July 1928)

The Victory Series 130/131 cars were equipped with 3408cc inline six-cylinder side-valve engines capable of generating 58 bhp (42.6 kW) of output at 3000 rpm. The Victory was concurrent with the Dodge Senior and Dodge Standard, two models that were sold alongside it. As with its sister models, engine power was transmitted from a single-plate dry clutch to a three-speed gearbox, and from there to the rear wheels. The 1928 Victory rode on a 2845 mm wheelbase. It was offered as a four-door touring car, a four-door sedan (in standard and deluxe versions) a two-door coupe with two or four seats, and a two-door brougham. Hydraulic brakes on all four wheels were standard.

M Series (July 1928-January 1929)

By mid-1928, the cars were renamed without major changes. However, there were new body styles available, including a two-door sedan, two-door roadster, four-door landaulet, four-door sports sedan, and four-door coupe. The touring car option was discontinued.

DA Series (January 1929-March 1930)

In early 1929, the M Series was renamed to the DA Series, and models became largely reproduced. The engine's output was increased to 63 bhp (46.3 kW). In addition to the previous body styles, the DA Series was also offered as a four-door phaeton.

The DA Series was replaced by the DD Series during March 1930.
